REVIEW: Four Year Strong – ‘Four Year Strong’

Artist: Four Year Strong
Album: Four Year Strong
Label: Pure Noise Records
Genre: Easycore, baby

REVIEW: The Story So Far – ‘The Story So Far’

Artist: The Story So Far
Title: The Story So Far

Throw in some aggressive gang vocals and deep-cut one-liners and you can take me home. This is what many had hoped would come of their new self-titled …
